Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering


Postgraduate Taught

Our postgraduate taught MSc programmes are offered both as a traditional on-campus course (usually studied either full-time over a period of one year or part-time over two years) and via distance-learning (students choosing this route may study flexibly for up to five years).

Students are able to specialise in Radiation Physics and Biomedical Engineering and Medical Imaging. The MSc programmes are also available as a Postgraduate Diploma or Postgraduate Certification.

New for September 2023!

Our new postgraduate programme, MSc Artificial Intelligence and Medical Imaging, is now open for admission for September 2023 entry. This new degree programme aims to teach the fundamental aspects of modern medical imaging using AI-enabled systems and will be delivered in partnership with the UCL Centre for Medical Image Computing (CMIC).
